A Sweet Surprise

Today, Mitchell came running up to me, telling me he had a special surprise for me.  Now with Mitchell, I never quite know what to expect when he says this (or what to expect from him in general, for that matter).  When he says he has a surprise for me, it could be anything - poopy underwear, a dead bug, a gooey booger, something of mine broken into pieces, a random toy...the sky is the limit with Mitchell and his "surprises."  

So when he came running up to me with a big grin on his face and a "surprise" hidden behind his back, I wasn't sure whether to be excited or run away.  Well, he ran right up to me and whipped his hands out from behind his back, and...they were empty!  I asked him where my surprise was and he leaned over to my ear and whispered, "I love you, mommy!"  Now that was a nice surprise - not that he loves me, but that he went through such theatrics to tell me in a special way.

  1. Oh! Tears! I had one of these moments with Luca the other day... usually when he says I love you randomly, it means he just did something he knew he shouldn't. But how sweet when it's "just because."
